this might be a bit off topic but i have a cat and he loves to go outside during the day, he goes out during the summer and seems rather hot and uncomfortable but refuses to come inside even in 90+ weather, does anyone know how i can help him cool off
Hehe...cats love heat and sun. They have a totally different concept of "hot and cold". Keep in mind they aren't people and there bodies work differently than ours. They deal with extreme temperatures better than people. As long as a cat's coat isn't wet, they can manage in heat and very cold temperatures.
As long as your cat isn't panting, he's fine. If he's doing this, pull him into a cool room and offer him water. Don't be surprised if he doesn't drink right away, if he needs to, he will.
